The smell of toast

Do y'all read Dave Hingsburger's blog? 
He posted this a while back but I'm a leeettlee bit behind in my reader.
I love-love-love this video -  
Dogs.  Awkward kids.  Redemption.
And my daughter watched it with me last night and clapped at the end.  Every time.

I had a rough day at work yesterday.  Bad news from afar and I snapped at someone unnecessarily.  REALLY SNAPPED.  It's a rough business and there is quite a bit of calculated bluster, and occasionally a little real irritation behind it, but *I* am supposed to be, and until yesterday was, the  cool, collected party on the phone.  Nothing epic, just a break in the armor.  Let's hope it's not a sign of impending collapse.  Even on the rough days though, there is always the smell of toast.  And last night, there was my daughter clapping at the puppies.


  1. loved that video, so great, you are right, all about the toast! Hang in there.

  2. I'm sorry to hear about the rough day at work. What is that Leonard Cohen quote about the cracks being where the light gets in? So maybe it's not impending collapse--maybe it's just a little light.

    I hope you have a restful Thanksgiving--and thanks for the beautiful video! (And the reminder to check in on Dave Hinsburger's blog.)

  3. Made me cry....glad to know that someone is cool and collected somewhere... I certainly am NOT famous for that.Hugs.
